Award yourself 500 geek points (can be traded in for geek cred) if you remember Matrox, one of several big players in the 1990s that also included NVIDIA, AMD, ATI (since absorbed by AMD), and 3DFX (since absorbed by NVIDIA). You don't see Matrox in the headlines too often these days, though the company is still around. It's still producing graphics cards too, including two recent entries -- the C420 and C680, both powered by AMD.The C420 is a low-profile, PCI-E x16 graphics card capable of driving up to four displays or projectors at up to 2560x1600 (each output).

Thunderbolts aren't reserved for the midnight sky and HTC's smartphone lineup anymore.

If there's one piece of technology that's under-appreciated these days...well, on second thought, that's opening a can of worms we aren't prepared to deal with. Let's just say that KVMs probably don't get the credit they deserve, but those that use 'em to flip between machines know just how precious they are.
